This year's cruise season kicked off May 14th, 2019. We invite you to join the Bancroft Cruisers for Cruise Nights in the Bancroft Canadian Tire parking lot.  Bring your car, truck or motorcycle and share in an evening of tire-kicking and good-natured banter focused on the vehicles we have, the ones we want and the ones that got away. Tell a few lies! Laugh. Life is too short not to have a cool car. See "Events" tab for full schedule.

So, if you are in or around the Bancroft (Ontario) area and happen to be a dedicated gear head, car geek, or just have a passing interest in vintage and collector cars, then plan to attend the Bancroft Cruisers' Cruise Nights every second Tuesday evening at Canadian Tire (Mid-May to late September). 

In addition to regularly scheduled events, the Cruisers also hosts special events including the annual summer BBQ at Bancroft's Millennium Park, the very popular greasy-finger corn roast, and the downtown Bancroft Show N' Shine when the main street of Bancroft becomes a massive parking lot with collector cars, vendors and live music.
